It is paramount that pipelines are well-maintained, particularly when they are load-bearing pipes carrying gas, oils, drinking water, and other types of resources. To ensure pipelines stand the test of time against ageing, wear & tear, corrosion, and more – we use pipeline rehabilitation.
Pipeline rehabilitation is required for several reasons but most commonly pipelines are repaired, restored, and strengthened due to:
- Decades of continuous service of large diameter buried pressure pipelines have led to deterioration that threatens the structural integrity of water transmission lines (ageing)
- Pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) that are in a state of distress due to the loss of steel wires due to corrosion and other factors (wear & tear)
- Reinforced concrete pressure pipes, steel and ductile iron pipelines that require structural renewal for extended service
In addition to replacing the structural performance of existing PCCP, RC, and steel pipes, pipeline rehabilitation can also be used to upgrade other pressure vessels, such as storage tanks.
